President Biden had promised in an interview August 18th “If there’s American citizens left, we’re gonna stay to get them all out.”
The promise appears to have now been broken.
Per Fox News:
President Biden appears to have broken his promise to stay in Afghanistan until every American is evacuated.
Marine Corps Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie Jr. announced Monday evening that the last of the U.S. troops stationed at the Kabul airport had left, completing the military’s drawdown in the country, even though hundreds of Americans likely remain.
McKenzie, commander of U.S. Central Command, said some American citizens who wanted to leave Afghanistan remain in country.
“We did not get everybody out that we wanted to get out,” he said.
Democrat Senator Mazie Hirono said in a CNN interview “There will be some who will not be able to get out in time. That’s why the continuing goal has got to be in place. And Secretary Blinken has said that he will give us more information as to how that is going to be accomplished going forward.”
